Samuel Josiah’s story
Samuel Josiah, from Waterlooville in Hampshire, has suffered from hair loss from a young age, which has massively impacted his mental health.
Insecure with his appearance, Sam recently set up a JustGiving page with the aim of raising enough funds to cover the cost of a hair transplant.
After discovering his pledge online, JUVIDA Clinics felt passionate about finding a way of helping Sam reach his goal and have since booked him into the clinic to receive a full hair transplant procedure.
Sam managed to raise an impressive £150 towards the cost of his hair transplant, but he had a long way to go before reaching the amount required.
Despite this, JUVIDA Clinics have offered Sam the procedure next month, and so have removed the pressure Sam felt to fundraise thousands of pounds.
Sam explained: “I can’t explain how grateful I am for the kindness shown by the team at JUVIDA. I am absolutely overwhelmed, and now I feel that I can look towards a brighter future.
“Losing my hair has made me feel as though I don’t want to leave the house, and if I do, I feel obliged to wear a hat to cover up.
“The impact on my mental health has become severe and for a while, and I couldn’t see a way to ever feel myself again until now.”
